In this post I will share with you my thoughts about the mark of the beast, as well as what the Book of Revelation clearly says about who has it.
Christians are greatly afraid of this mark, and various pastors tell different opinions about what that mark is. But if viewed from an esoteric perspective, those various opinions fall away and only one explanation makes most sense.
If the mark is taken symbolically, the conclusion is only one, and not many. And that conclusion is that those people who have the mark of the beast are those who only have earthly consciousness, without the Spirit directing their lives.
If the Spirit doesn’t direct our lives, then we indeed are one of the beasts of the earth. There’s nothing much that separates us from animals, because they too are controlled by the earthly consciousness only.
The Book of Revelation itself tells us that the mark of the beast is the number 666, which is the number of man:
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
— Revelation 13:18
So if the man remains unregenerate, in his fallen state, he’s the beast.
The mark will be on their foreheads and on their right hands. The mark of the beast on the forehead means that the person failed to activate the pineal gland, and thus is cut off from the connection with his Higher Self – the Spirit. Therefore, he can only make decisions based on earthly consciousness and he’s blocked from spiritual consciousness. This indeed makes him into a beast.
The mark on the right hand is beastly, earthly consciousness expressing itself through action. A beast cannot act like divine. Those who are cut off from the Spirit act as beasts, because earthly consciousness is directing their hands.
Everyone in the world has the mark, except those who are born of Spirit. I talk about how to be born of Spirit here. Only when you connect with your Higher Self (when kundalini makes an opening by leaving your crown chakra) can it influence you to the extent that it directs your actions. Thus, you stop being the beast, and you start being a divine human.
When you are born of spirit (not in a biblical but esoteric way), you no longer see yourself as simply a regular human. You know you have become different. In Buddhism this is called “a change of lineage”.
You indeed then see that men are beasts; their actions are driven by natural impulses that aren’t even their own. They are puppets of the planets and the forces of nature. Those forces use them and dissipate them, making them act and look beast-like.
When you are born of Spirit, you stop being a puppet to those earthly forces. Spirit, and not impulses, starts controlling you. You rise above humanity and soon nothing at all in the way that you act looks similar to the manners of the crowd.
Thus, it is only the second birth that saves you from the mark. All of us are born fallen and with a mark already. But when we are born of spirit, we change our lineage, we become more than human. We are half divine and half physical then. This is what saves us from the mark.
